Which CPU to use for Blender, Cycles, Eevee: Intel Core or AMD Ryzen?

I want to build computer for Blender.

This will be desktop computer. It will be running Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

In Blender I will do 3D modeling. Rendering I will do in Cycles and Eevee.

Which CPU to use: Intel Core or AMD Ryzen?

At this point, we are few weeks away from official review of the latest AMD Zen3 based Ryzen 5000 CPU’s …

If their singular core performance is indeed what was advertised, then AMD all the way… no question from any perspective.

There are some functions in blender that require good single core performance, and this is where AMD was still lagging slightly with their current Ryzen 3000 series.

Still for multi core, AMD is pure win, Intel has nothing to offer for equal price.


@Grzesiek, thank you. I took into attention.
